One Penn Plaza
One Penn Plaza, New York, NY 10001
Scan the NYC skyline for the red “1” and you will find One Penn Plaza, just two blocks west of the Empire State Building. The 57-story grey glass tower holds court in the center of classic Manhattan, between Penn Station, Madison Square Garden and Macy’s flagship Herald Square store. The 1972 building has established itself as an influential Silicon Alley address, with Riverbed Technology, Cisco Systems and Citigroup as current tenants. It occupies the block between 33rd and 34th Streets and 7th and 8th Avenues, straddling the startup-dense blocks of Chelsea and the Garment District. And getting from One Penn Plaza to the rest of the city - and beyond - is as easy as it gets via underground connections to 34th Street/Penn Station and the Long Island Railroad. Far above ground, One Penn Plaza’s upper floors provide dramatic views of the entire city and the Hudson River. The building’s main entrance opens to 34th Street, but it also has points of entry on each block. There is 24/7 security and keycard turnstiles in place. The 2.5 million square-foot property was remodeled in 1995. A 2010 heating upgrade cut the tower’s carbon output in half and helped it achieve LEED-EB certification and an ENERGY STAR label. One Penn Plaza provides a front row seat for NYC action. From your desk, you will be just minutes from a Rangers game at The Garden, a movie at Loews cinema, and countless dining options that range from a pizza at Rosa’s to Tex-Mex at Lucy’s, and from pasta at Lugo to happy hour at Local. During the workday,the ground-level Pennsylvania Plaza hosts a year-round calendar of music, fitness and educational events that attract many 34th Street area workers.
